A natural, effective alternative to steroid suppositories; helps soothe and heal anal fissures.
Ultra-thin (1/6" or 3.5 mm in diameter) for easy insertion into sore or traumatized rectum. Extra-long (2 inches) to reach a fissure even high up in the rectal canal. Or, each suppository can be broken into 2 or 3 suppositories if fissure is closer to anus.
People with Inflammatory Bowel Disease often suffer from anal and/or rectal fissures. Also, postpartum women, the elderly, or people with severe constipation can suffer anal or rectal tearing. FissureHeal suppositories are composed of the most effective herbal ingredients to assist in healing these tears and fissures.*
Ingredients: Slippery elm, marshmallow root, comfrey root, cocoa butter, beeswax.
Slippery Elm - good for diarrhea and ulcers when taken internally. Soothes inflamed mucous membranes of the stomach, intestines and urinary tract.*
Marshmallow Root - soothes and heals mucous membranes, skin and other tissues. Aids the body in expelling excess mucus and fluid.*
Comfrey Root - speeds healing of wounds, bleeding hemorrhoids, and many skin conditions. Contains allantoin; a significant skin healer/regenerator.*
Cocoa Butter - a rich and soothing emollient to moisturize tissue leaving it more supple and pliable.*
Beeswax - only a minimal amount is added to increase stability and aid even dispersion of the ingredients as the suppository melts. Emollient and protective for rectal/anal tissue.*
SUGGESTED USE: (see package insert for detailed instructions)
- Ideally, empty bowels prior to insertion.
- Break off suppository to the desired length, or use as is.
- Hold the suppository with your fingers and slide gently into your anal canal, either standing, sitting on the toiltet, or lying down on your side. Please see the image below:
- Store suppositories at room temperature (70 degrees Fahrenheit) or cooler, or refrigerate (best).
- Do not use more than 6 suppositories per day, or for more than 4 months continuously.
- Each suppository is handmade with care, so shape and color may vary slightly.
- Consult your doctor before using if pregnant
- Refrigerated shipping is required for this product during the summer months - May/June to August
Warning: This product contains comfrey. Comfrey contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids which may cause illness.

These suppositories contain comfrey – which is a fantastic wound healer. Therefore, they heal anal or rectal fissures amazingly quickly. I’ve used them myself numerous times. I've made them 2" long in case you have a long fissure, or one high up your rectal canal. But, if your fissure is closer to your anus, you can break them into shorter pieces and get 2-3 suppositories out of each one. They’re also extra-thin so no matter how traumatized or sore your rectum is, you can insert them easily.
Important: Professional herbalists and naturopathic physicians take a very different stance on comfrey use from the established authorities. Many herbalists and NDs feel it's safe to use comfrey as long as you don't use it continually, long-term. Therefore, they recommend you use it in moderate doses for 3 to 6 months, then take a break of 1 month to allow the liver to cleanse properly, then resume use for 3 to 6 months, etc. as needed. Comfrey has become one of the FDA's targeted substances - likely due to its effectiveness, so when you do your research, keep that in mind.
Personally, I have used comfrey repeatedly on broken skin for myself and my kids. I have used it repeatedly as a suppository and I have used it as a Healing Implant Enema to stop colonic bleeding. You, of course, should do your research, follow your naturopathic doctor's advice, and only do what feels safe for you.
Note: Regarding the price of FissureHeal: Some customers have questioned why FissureHeal costs what it does, they love it and will continue to use the product, but they're wondering why it can't be available at a cheaper price?
Good question! And here's why: Each FissureHeal suppository is hand-made by a certified compound pharmacy. We have gotten numerous production quotes for it, and the pharmacy we chose quoted us the best price they could, here's what they wrote to us:
"After a complete cost evaluation of the ingredients used, shipping costs (receiving and sending), time to compound (weighing, mixing, pouring), foil wrapping each one individually and boxing..... The compounding procedure from start to finish is tedious work. We must get each suppository poured properly (no air bubbles), remove each one out of the mold without damaging it and wrapping it consistently. This is very time consuming. I tried to keep the costs as low as I could and still make it fair for both you and I."
So, if we could sell it to you cheaper, we would, but as you can see, this is a very time-consuming, handmade, high quality product and the price reflects that.
I have only used 2 suppositories and I can feel an improvement in soothing the tissue and creating more moisture and less dryness and less uncomfortability in thelower portion of my rectum where I have thehemmorrhoids.
For the past 6 weeks I've been dealing with (and obsessed with healing) multiple anal fissures, internal hemorrohoids, and a sentinel tag from childbirth. The dread and fear I would feel each morning was debilitating and I have tried so many different remedies which never provided relief. I'm not sure if it's solely due to the suppositories (since I'm also taking homeopathics Ratanhia, Nitric Acid, Thuja, and Silicea), but my morning movements are way less painful and so far no more blood. I've been using these once in the morning and once at night. I'm looking forward to being fissure free in a few weeks. Thank you for making a great product!
This is the first herbal suppository I've used that seems to work. I only used them, full size, for 4 days in a row and the fissures seemed to have healed well enough but given my pattern, I'll need to see how it works in the long term. However, If you have fissures this is most definitely a great product to try!
I used 1/2 suppository and felt as if I had a headache. I have trouble w/constipation so I take Metamucil, MoM, & a stool softener each afternoon/evening to help relieve the constipation. Because of this, I can only use the suppositories in the afternoon because I am up and down all night going to the bathroom. I am 86 yrs old and have had hemorrhoid surgery one yr ago,I'm also a cancer survivor and a heart patient. Because of the rectal prolapse I am in extreme pain I hope to eventually be able to use the suppositories, however, I do not want them to interfere with any of my medications of elevated blood pressure. Not sure why I had a headache after taking 1/2 suppository.
Seeking healing I placed my first order. I have used about half of the 12 so far. Mostly at night before bed. I have had symptom relief with no issues with allergic reactions or itchiness. So I would say so far so good, in the last 6 months this is working better than prescription compounded nifedipine ointment and other over the counter products. Symptom relief is good, but I am hoping for healing so stay tuned! Surgery makes no sense to me.
I have been only using this product for 1 week, but the difference is night and day, thank God! I couldn't afford the steroid suppositories my doctor prescribed for me, even with insurance. These are not cheap either, but all natural which is a plus. Steroid products can have adverse effects on some users. So far I feel the product is very worth the investment! My pain level is way down.
These have been effective for my symptoms when surgery was only option. Comfrey is an ingredient that has been used safely millennia for wounds. The (suppository) delivery is effective. Must follow instructions provided. My only complaint is not often in stock when I need it. Too expensive for me to stock up. Been using this product for many years.
Thank you for your excellent product, customer service and attention to detail when shipping products to us. You are the BEST!
I've seen many reviews in which people claimed that this product healed their fissure(s). I tried it, but it is quite expensive, so I was "stingy" with it; I used 1/2 dose just once a day, and used homemade coconut oil-basil oil-suppositories in between. My fissure didn't heal, but I feel that I was almost there. It did provide much comfort after use. I'm going to try it again, but this time I won't use it sparingly. Fingers crossed; I'll be back to update!
